What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Wooster

I live in an older, well established neighborhood. But many of my original neighbors have either moved or died. The new neighbors are less sociable. But my pharmacy is close.

It's pretty quiet and private. We are about 10 minutes away from major stores and restaurants. There are several small shops and taverns around town that are really nice.

how close we are to everything. they make sure they keep up with the roads and their conditions. and doordash is available.

live downtown and there is all kinds of things to do alot of stores. The olde jail is less than a block away have awesome food

It's quiet at night. Not a lot of traffic. You can have farm animals and raise them without anyone saying anything.

There is a pretty large park with two tennis courts and a basketball court. It is also very close to downtown so you could take a walk to a restaurant!
